A married Upper West Side financial analyst has been accused of flippantly asking for oral sex during an interview with a nanny for his one-year-old daughter.
The 27-year-old nanny who asked to visit Dawan told the New York Post that her encounter on March 8 with 43-year-old Jason Kuperman at his West 58th Street apartment left her feeling scared and violated.
Dawan told the outlet she was alone with the 43-year-old when he took her on a tour of his lavish home — which sold for $297,000 in 2013 — and when they reached the bathroom, she reportedly made the raunchy request.
She claims that while Kuperman showed her a pillow there and said it would be good for performing oral sex and reportedly asked, “Do I like blowjobs?” Have I ever done that or not?’

The babysitter did not accept the alleged proposal, but was shocked when Kuperman made the lecherous request again.
“You don’t suck?” she claims he said.
‘[He then] asked me ‘shall I do it or not?’ I said, ‘No, I won’t.’
A terrified Dawan then began secretly recording the interaction with Kuperman who allegedly supplied the recording to the New York Post.
On the scathing recording, it is claimed she demanded to know why he had asked her such an inappropriate question, to which he replied, “It’s like cleaning a closet, doing the laundry… You don’t have to.” I was ordinary [asking] a question. That’s not necessary.’
Dawan reportedly struggled to open the apartment door and when she finally escaped, she allegedly reported the incident to the police.
A complaint about a woman being solicited for sex during a job interview at Kuperman’s address was upheld by the NYPD.
In the aftermath of the trespassing incident, several women who read a warning about Kuperman on Facebook came forward with their own experiences working with the 43-year-old.
“I’m part of a Brazilian group for babysitting gigs around town and three girls said the same thing. They were afraid to speak up or go to the police because of their immigration status,” one person wrote.
In another case, a woman from Brazil said she exchanged messages with Kuperman about a possible job when he told her she was “too beautiful and wouldn’t be able to control herself.”
Kuperman, a member of at least one of the Facebook groups where the allegations were posted, has since deleted his social media accounts.
A 22-year-old Manhattan resident who spoke anonymously to the New York Post said she had been working for the family for about a month and was also the subject of ludicrous suggestive comments.
She claims he had said she was “too pretty to be a nanny.”
“On my last day, the father grabbed my ass in front of the mother. That was my last straw,” she claimed.
She said she quit the job by text message the next day, but Kuperman kept trying to contact her.
“I’m very happy for you that you’ve found a better job. No hard feelings at all… No need to ghost or block. I’m happy for you. I would like to remain on good terms,” he reportedly wrote on Oct. 7.
Sara Freizer Kuperman has vehemently denied the allegations, telling the outlet, “All I can say is that none of this is true.”
“These allegations are false. Jason is a loving husband and a wonderful father.”
A 21-year-old from Manhattan said she exchanged messages with Kuperman about a babysitting job and asked to meet him in a public area for an interview instead of this house, as he requested.
“It sounds like you’re scared and immature, so let’s just forget about it,” he allegedly responded, according to a text message The New York Post accessed.
The woman claimed, “I’m taking precautions because I’m no match for a grown man once I go behind that locked door.”
‘I immediately got such a bad feeling and despite my desperation and rent to pay, I didn’t continue with the position.’

The Kuperman’s have denied their allegations, calling them “completely and categorically false”
Kuperman denied their allegations, calling them “completely and categorically false” to the New York Post.
“Some are from people I’ve never met. Others are from people who texted me after their interview saying how nice it was to meet and hope to work with me soon,” he said in a statement to the outlet.
“I feel terrible if I’ve inadvertently made someone feel uncomfortable through a misunderstood comment or a poor attempt at humor.
“As a father of a daughter, I fully support equality and our shared social responsibilities. While these allegations are not true, I will take this as an opportunity to reflect on how I can take a more active role in working towards a better society for my daughter’s future.”
